Event description

Description

We live in an era of division. Many countries around the world are suffering stark inequalities between rich and poor, young and old, metropolitan and rural, settled and newcomer. And this is driving new and potentially dangerous forms of politics to the fore. There is an urgent need for ideas and initiatives to bridge these divides and create a stronger, fairer society.

Academics Stand Against Poverty and the New Economics Foundation are pleased to welcome members of Club de Madrid, Zlatko Lagumdzija, Prime Minister of Bosnia & Herzegovina (2001-2002) and Wim Kok, Prime Minister of the Netherlands (1994-2002) to lead a discussion on what different countries can learn from each other about how to build a more inclusive society. They will be joined on the panel by:

  • Richard Bell, Head of Policy, Public Affairs and Research at The Challenge

  • Henrietta Moore, Director of the Institute for Global Prosperity at UCL, where she also holds the Chair in Culture, Philosophy and Design

  • Leif Wenar, Chair of Philosophy and Law at the School of Law, King's College London

The panel will be chaired by Helen Yanacopulos, Professor of International Politics and Development at the Open University.
